A deposit maybe required dependent on your location. Payment in full is required on the day of the shoot before the session starts.
Above all else, wear clothes that are comfortable and make you feel great. But it’s always best to keep things simple – we want the focus to be on your face, not on what you’re wearing. Darker clothes are less distracting, so a simple black T-Shirt / blouse is always a good option, but also bring a good variety of alternatives in solid colours that you think work well with your hair and skin tones, and we can choose together what’s likely to work best for you when you arrive.
Avoid large logos and branded clothing, as well as busy patterns and large stripes, and definitely no sequins / glitter / studs etc. Different necklines can have an impact on the shape of your face in-camera, so bring a variety of styles – not just the same style of top in different colours. Polo-necks are almost always a bad idea, as they crowd the face.
Your headshot should look as natural as possible – a guaranteed way to irritate Casting Directors is to turn up to an audition looking nothing like the headshot they called you in on! I normally suggest that my clients do their hair and make up as they would normally do it themselves.
If your hair is long enough, I always suggest shooting with it both up and down to give you a variety of looks, so please bring any hair products and brush that you would normally use to style your hair in different ways.
Much like my advice on hair and make-up, I always recommend that your final headshots should be as natural-looking as possible. So whilst I will use Photoshop to do some re-touching, I’ll use it sparingly.
My definition of airbrushing is I am happy to correct anything that’s temporary, such as skin blemishes and redness, or just a bit untidy, such as flyaway hairs, but if there are any cosmetic issues that you particularly want to address, such as teeth whitening, under-eye circles and lines etc. I’m generally happy to do that for a minimal extra fee, as long we’re still in the ballpark of cosmetic tweaks rather than cosmetic surgery!
With every package I offer you will receive all useable images that are taken on the shoot. As far as I am concerned I don’t believe in upselling and I am proud to be able to share with you every shot we take on the shoot. These Images only have a basic edit and not completely airbrushed but will be high res and free to use and print as you wish. With airbrushing you choose which Image or Images you would like airbrushed and I will work my magic on your selection.
